Thanks to Oprah and others, many of us have now been exposed to "The Law of Attraction." The best teachers I've had for learning these techniques are a group known as Abraham. See this post for an explanation of who they are.
Here are a few more of my favorite Abraham quotes:
You don't create things that you want. You create things that you give your attention to, whether you want them or not. Los Angeles 4/1/07
So what you are wanting to do, is to spend more of your time basking in the memory of a perfectly functioning body. Not tensing against the body that's not working quite so well but spend more time remembering, more time regurgitating more time finding that place of Pure Positive Energy, and your body will realign itself. It is certain. 3-16-94
Complaining about anything, holds you in the place of refusing to receive the things you've been asking for. Justifying about anything holds you in the place of refusing to let in the very things that you've been asking for. Blaming someone, holds you in the place of refusing to let in the things that you've been asking for. Feeling guilty, feeling angry, it doesn't matter what you call it, it is a refusal, not a conscious one. You're asking; you can't help but ask. The Universe is yielding; it must yield. It's a big question, folks: why aren't you letting it in? Excerpted from the workshop in Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, March 10th,2001
Drink much more water than you are accustomed to drinking, and let it be 90% of the liquids you consume...When you drink a lot of water---every function of your body works more efficiently. 5/3/92
Feelyour way into the thought rather than thinking your way into the feeling. (think about that, lol) 5/1/05 Asheville, NC
"Give me an improved condition, and then I will feel better" is what most people are asking for, but what is really required of you is the ability to maintain your balance and your Connection to who-you-really- are, regardless of the conditions that exist.
